Wisp A Story of Hope

Written by Zana Fraillon

Illustrated by Grahame Baker Smith

Wisp A Story of Hope Synopsis

Idris is a child refugee, born into a world of tents and fences. He has known no other life than this. He has no memories of the world outside. Then the Wisp arrives, floating in on the evening breeze. Everyone who holds it finds their memories reawakened, their hopes of freedom reborn. But what about Idris, who has no memories? What will happen when he holds the magical Wisp?

'Grahame Baker Smith's haunting and immersive illustration is perfect for this story of hope in the darkest of places' BookTrust
